**E 100**
Lower plate: 170

About the Tiger II... I can pen it’s upper plate with the top IS-3 gun without premium rounds.

Tiger 2 will be OP?  And no changes to the E75?  They better not nerf my favorite tank.

I am now the #1 ranked E75 on the NA server!

These changes are very dramatic and most of them are not neccesairy. The current balancing for a +1-/1 game does not need many of these changes. I agree the VK A needs a buff, the Ferdi is already getting buffed next patch and the tiger 2 is questionable. But all the other tanks are fine as they are.

I especially like the part where you said Maus needs a buff because it feels "squishy" when it is currently the best tier 10 tank in the game. Leading in average win rate for the whole player base by 8% as pointed out by Wargamings last tier 10 balance patch. The Maus needs a nerf if anything.

E100’s lower plate is large and very weak, wouldn’t hurt to get 20mm more armor on it. Tiger II hull armor will be 250mm effective. Defender/IS-5 their premium rounds are 272mm of pen

Somebody seems to struggle in hiding their lower plate armor... German heavies are all about the xtra thicc turrets and epic upper plates. Not to mention they have pretty OK gun depression for heavies.

I'm a filthy reroll. Fight me.

"Erwin Rommel was a German general and military theorist. Popularly known as the 'Desert Fox', he served as Field Marshal in the Wehrmacht of 3rd Reich Germany during World War 2." No, I don't support the ideology of the 3rd Reich. But I believe that there were respectable men in the 3rd Reich. Rommel was one of them.

Are you telling WG to make this tank so over powered just to fit your lack of skill when you're playing this tank? This balancing is ridiculous.

The VK B does not need lower plate buff, in fact this is one of the balancing factors of this tank.

The Tiger 2 is amazing, wth.

 

Maybe a really small frontal turret buff, but that's about it.

Let's be honest, German tanks don't need a buff [edited], unless it's the Grille which needs it's speed back

I struggle with just boosting German armour for the sake of helping those big lumbering beasts because the Cent 7/1 and 4202 already got a nerf for pen and they did a weird thing with the ammo.  

 

Thus,.. you end up with boosting armour and reducing two already weakened tanks who need armour to be in a range to benefit their ammo uniqueness.

 

After playing on both sides of the argument too I don't think armour necessarily is the key.  It just tends to be where we look first.

Everything else about the tiger would be fine with this, unless you would like a 1000 HP turbine engine

While I’m absolute trash when it comes to the King Tiger, I’m in agreement that these are not the sort of buffs the German Heavies really need.  

 

Could a couple of them use a little help against same and even lower tier AP rounds in terms of their lower glacis?  Of course.  But show me a tank that couldn’t and then look at the trade offs that tank had to make to get that armor.  And no, you can’t use the IS-7 as an example.  We all know about the IS-7.

 

The only thing I think they need is a turret traverse buff.  A couple of extra °/sec here.  A few more there, and problem solved.  Probably.  Maybe?  Awww hell.  Let’s do it anyway! :great:


The point of the game is to win.  The purpose of the game is to have fun.  They are not mutually exclusive.

Um, many tier 9 tanks can pen the turret cheeks on the E100 with prammo. A day or so ago I had an IS-8 pen my turret cheeks while on the move about 200m away. And don't forget about the enormous slab sides. Now compare to an IS-7 with amazing turret armor, with sides that only have small sections penetrable.
